Book Description

Can a sexy nightclub owner convince an all star basketball player to risk it all?

Love of Sports Book 1

Professional basketball player Kasey Johnson makes a point of keeping his sexual preference under guard and out of the public eye. Empty, off-season flings are all he can look forward to until he retires. He figures his secret is safe—until he meets Ingram Fletcher, a nightclub owner who ignites a passionate inferno in his body.

Gram has lusted after Kasey ever since the long, tall basketball player was traded to Phoenix a year ago. But with Kasey’s twin brother running interference, up until now Gram’s been unsure if it’s safe to make a play. Then some incidental contact in the crowded club leads to a kiss that starts Gram wondering if a relationship is possible—now, and beyond March Madness.

A romantic weekend together answers that question. Now the only one remaining is if Kasey is ready make a fast break out of his comfort zone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Soft gay porn July 10, 2010
By Nigel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Trite and repetitive - why do gay novels generally tend to be little more than a series of strung togther sex scenes with little narrative content ad even less literary value. Come on guys we deserve better than this. The theme of issues of being openly gay in sport is raised but the the novel closes before the consequences of being out are seen and the story developed. Mills and Boon for gay men with sex included! An hour's read at best with little characterisation or story outside the sex scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good January 20, 2010
By Admete
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kasey and Garrett are twins who happen to be both gay and public figures. Garrett is an out gay actor and Kasey a basketball player who isn't ashamed of his sexuality but is hesitant about comming of for safety reasons.
Gram is an openly gay club owner in the city the twins live in. Garrett frequents the club more often than Kasey does but Gram has a crush on Kasey.
This is Kasey and Gram's story and it is a good one about find love and working to hold on to it even when it doesn't fit your 'ten year plan' to have it now.
Kasey and Gram find ways to be together without to many problems and Gram is an amazing partner who respects Kasey's need to not be out to the world.

A very good short story that delivers on many levels with some pretty hot sex scens

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, but could have been executed much better August 5, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 4/10

PROS:
- The story is filled with glamorous surroundings and people who are fun to read about. Who's not interested, on at least some level, in famous twin brothers who make People's 50 Most Beautiful People list, frequent A-list clubs, and stay in the executive suites of fancy hotels?
- I liked Kasey's brother, Garrett, quite a bit. He's flashy and flamboyant with a "devil take it" attitude, yet he also knows when to be serious and is very protective of his twin.
- Gram has a pretty serious thing for Kasey from the start of the story, and I thought it was cute that although Gram thinks he has hidden his attraction so well, so many of his employees and friends know about it and encourage it.

CONS:
- I couldn't help rolling my eyes at some of the melodramatic--and unrealistic--things the characters do. Kasey, who's not out in public, wakes up on the couch of a night club and immediately twines his fingers with Gram's...then lets Gram kiss him? Gram starts calling Kasey "baby" after their first sexual encounter? Kasey gives an impassioned coming out speech to a whole slew of reporters not 20 minutes after having said he wasn't going to tell anyone outright?
- There's practically no buildup, emotional or physical, to the first sex scene, and because there's so little development between sex scenes, they left me cold. They're lovingly described in rather minute detail, but I found them a little clinical. They have a removed, play-by-play feel to them.
- Some of the dialogue is wooden-sounding and is used to awkwardly convey plot points that would have been better placed in the exposition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Story June 21, 2010
By Toby
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book very much, I travel a great deal and therefore am very appreciative to good authors and only give five stars to those I believe tell a good story, have a great ending and have me wanting more. I don't always need all the sex or blood and gore, sometimes a romance, a love story or a drama is what I need. I highly recommend this book. And have recommended it to our book club in New York and Aspen,..I also recommend reading....The Boy He Loved - Obsession Into Darkness (Gay Suspense), Reflections In The Looking Glass - A Murder Mystery That Will Surprise you (Gay Murder Mystery), My Gay Socks (Gay Romance)and From Boys to Men (Gay Classic), you may also want to read,The Crane & Pelican (Gay Romance).

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sexy! April 26, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
This latest from TA Chase is very sexy and hot. Vol 1 centers on Kasey a famed but closeted basketball star, who finds love with a much older nightclub owner.
The story could have been more angsy if the writer so choose as
it is never easy for a gay athlete to come out as he could lose all his fans and sponsors. But TA focuses more on the erotica side, the tauntings from fellow players, reporters more a side issue. And it works as this man writes the sex scenes so well. And it is rare to have a well over 6 feet basket ball player being 100% bottom even if an agressive bottom in a relationship. Interesting main and side characters and I look forward to more in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of Bounds (Love of Sports 1) by T.A. Chase April 25, 2008
By Elisa
Format:Kindle Edition
One thing you could say of T.A. Chase's books is that they are all very different. This one is a sexual romp (from Merriam Webster Online romp = a: high-spirited, carefree, and boisterous play b: something suggestive of such play: as (1): a light fast-paced narrative, dramatic, or musical work usually in a comic mood (2): an episode of lovemaking).

Kasey is a 23 years old pro basketball player. He is only in his second year as professional player and he has no courage to openly admit that he is gay. He is out with his family and friends, but not with the public opinion. Plus his twin brother Garrett, a famous actor, has made coming out some years ago and now all media are only waiting for him to make the same claim.

But Kasey till now has never had a boyfriend to care and he doesn't see the reason to suffer all the harrassment he will receive in the locker room if he makes that claim. That is, but now in Kasey's life enters Gram, a night club owner and an openly gay man who had bad experiences in the past with closeted lovers.

Kasey must decide if he is willing to risk his career to keep his lover by his side.

The story is not very long, less than 90 pages, but it's very erotic. From the first time Kasey and Gram have a very intense relationship and they are driven by lust most of the time. Since Kasey is a 23 years old guy that for sometime was deprived of a sexual partner, I think it's not strange that now that he can have someone near him, he is in frenzy to make up for the lost time. Plus it was a true discovery that Kasey is a totally bottom. I'm used to sports characters to be always very manly, even if gay, and usually they are totally top. Instead Kasey wants to be mastered, even if he is a pushy bottom.
